In their debut book, Cathy LeBlanc and Dave Chapman guide readers through a year in Mi’kma’ki. Explorers begin in Mate Calling Time (named for the moose’s distinctive call) and progress through the next 11 moons. They include Frogs Croaking Time, Birds Shedding Feathers Time, and Trees Fully Leafed Time. Mi’kmaw painter Loretta Gould complements the conversational text with playful and evocative art. Mi’kmaw elders shared tales with the authors to underpin the work.
